Spence-Chapin’s Birth Parent Support Group is a virtual meet-up for individuals who made an adoption plan (with Spence-Chapin or elsewhere) and are in any stage in their placement journey. This group is a safe place to get support and know that you are not alone. Topics will include coping with feelings of grief and loss, sharing challenges and successes with open and closed adoption, and improving communication with friends and family around your adoption plan.
Spence-Chapin’s Birth Parent Support Group meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 7pm EST.
There is no cost to attend. All attendees will receive a Zoom link to their confirmation email after registration.
This group will be moderated by Sarah Quasarano, LMSW. Sarah is currently the Manager of Domestic Adoption Programs at Spence-Chapin. A Michigan native, Sarah earned her Bachelor of Social Work from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She then completed her graduate degree in Social Work at Columbia University. Sarah’s experience includes extensive work in the field of adoption, Early Head Start and Educational Advocacy programs focused on children and parents during the early childhood years.
